    Thanks, Russell, Rick and Chris!

    I appreciate your very geneous words, and am very glad you like how this one came out. It's not as small as Ray's ("Texman") excellent micro mini planes, and certainly not as good, and you can tell I am still experimenting with trying to keep the rigging taunt using fly tying silk, but I'm pretty happy with the way it finally came out. I have to say, the FG models are fun to work with, and they come out pretty nice...the lack of formers sometimes does give me fits on shaping the fuselage, but it wasn't much of an issue on this one...guess I'm getting the hang of this.:) And no one is more surprised than me to find my photo on the home page today...I am so very honored.

    Thanks again, guys!

    Cheers!
    Jim
